School board approves annual budget

The “preferred last line” mailing program adopted by Etna Township earlier this year has become effective, with one unexpected result, said township zoning administrator Chris Harkness. When the township economic development committee first began discussing the idea last fall, the hope was to use the program to promote an Etna Township identity by giving residents and businesses the choice of using Etna or the traditional city address, such as Pataskala or Reynoldsburg. In either case, the ZIP code remains the same. “The post office told us both addresses would be valid and you could continue to use either one, but the preferred last line would be Etna, so that would be the default,” Harkness said. Until June 14, officials believed that addresses would not change unless the addressees took the affirmative step of changing their address. It appears, however, that many companies that send regular mailings, such as utility companies and banks, are somehow using a post-office database to prepare bills and other mailings, so that the preferred last line is being used even if the addressee has not taken steps to change the address. “People are starting to get mail addressed as Etna,” Harkness said. “We’re finding companies are linked into the post-office database, so that their addresses for customers are changing automatically to the default, which is Etna. I’m not sure how that is happening so fast (without action by the resident).” Harkness said he was worried when two people contacted him on the same day, but since then, no one else has raised the issue. “The two calls I had gotten are the only two,” Harkness said. “I’m going to look into it and see if there is anything we can do, to see what is going on

The Licking Heights school board met in a special meeting June 30 to approve a yearending appropriation resolution for fiscal year 2011, which closed June 30, and a temporary appropriation to begin the fiscal year 2012, which began July 1. A permanent appropriation will be approved in October, after the school year begins and contracts are in place for the year. “This is for audit purposes, to make sure everything ties up,” said treasurer Jennifer Vanover. “The temporary appropriation allows me to make payroll in July and pay bills. If we did not have it, I would not be able to spend any money.” Board member Richard Wand said the action was a legal requirement, which would be reviewed by the state auditor. “We have to approve appropriations before the end of the fiscal year,” Wand said. Vanover said the district has several different actions that make up the budget, depending on the management purpose being served. Initial appropriations constitute the legal authorization to spend money, while the final appropriation conforms the budget to what was actually expended. In addition, the district prepares a fiveyear forecast each spring and fall, which is required by state law, that reports district spending in greater detail. For the past three years, Vanover has prepared a more detailed statement of generalfund expenditures that, although not required under law, helps Vanover and board mem-

Pataskala

Multi-use trail expected to be completed by September By MICHAEL J. MAURER ThisWeek Community Newspapers The city of Pataskala is on schedule to build a nearly one-mile multi-use trail, the “Cross Town Line,” that will link the Bright Water and Pataskala Ridge subdivisions. The construction cost of the project is paid for by a grant from the Ohio

Department of Natural Resources, said Dianne Harris, city planning and zoning director. The construction cost is about $190,000, while the city is responsible for another $40,000 or so in engineering costs. “We’re hoping to get the design work finished up, get the project out to bid in July and have construction under

way in August,” Harris said. The trail will include the city’s second bridge over a creek for a multi-use path. Harris said the trail will be constructed in an environmentally friendly manner and will be paved with asphalt or compacted aggregate materials. Some changes to the path have been

made because of the difficulty in obtaining easements, but Harris said the city had found alternative paths. Generally, the path will follow the contours of the South Fork Creek through Municipal Park and near a small tract of wetlands and farm fields. It will include access to Hazelton Crossing Retail Center, Pataskala Ridge and the southern parts of Old Village Pataskala.

Harris said the project represents the first of multiple phases of a larger trail development effort. “We’re definitely very early in the process (of completing a comprehensive citywide trail system),” she said. “We’ll look for whatever grant support we can find to make connections beSee MULTI-USE TRAIL, page A2

County health officials say cases of West Nile Virus are not common By MICHAEL J. MAURER ThisWeek Community Newspapers Following recent news reports about positive tests for West Nile Virus in mosquito populations in Franklin County, Licking County officials have reported only one positive test in May from among 70 traps set around the county. “We’ve had one positive (test) in the county, in May, and since then, we’ve had none,” said Chad Brown, director of community health for the Licking County Health Department. “Typically, we’ll find it every year. This year it was earlier than normal, but it was a very wet spring.” Brown said the county has not had any recent human infections. “It’s been a few years,” Brown said. “I can say we have not had anyone test (positive) for it for at least three years. It’s becoming less common (for people to contract the disease). I know we’ve had some in the coun-

ty, but not since 2008.” Brown said mosquito populations in Licking County are tested frequently all summer. “We set traps throughout the county, just about on a daily basis,” Brown said. “We set them in the evening, because mosquitoes come out at night, then we collect them in the morning and we send them over to the Ohio Department of Health in Reynoldsburg for testing. We run them over.” Brown said most county and municipal health departments use the state for testing. “They do get overwhelmed and they can lag behind in getting results,” Brown said. “In the beginning here, it’s been about a month (to get results). As we go along, it will drop down to about a week (for results). They tend to get bombarded from health departments early on and then it dies off.”

tween subdivisions and to retrofit older areas.” Harris said recent years have seen increasing emphasis on pedestrian-friendly routes. “There is a movement to encourage people to use other modes of transportation than the automobile, to be more active and healthy,” she said. “Common forms of development 40 years ago have not been pedestrian-friendly and not very safe. “So there is a movement to try to accommodate all forms of transportation in transportation planning. It ties to recreation, it ties to community health, it ties to transportation. There is a lot of encouragement for pedestrian access.” Particularly in areas such as the Old Village, it is common for bike paths to run over existing roadways rather than having a separate, dedicated multi-use path. But, Harris said, such situations are handled by signage and other pavement markings. “Bikes can ride on the roads now,” Harris said. “We think we can separate them safely. West of Main (Street), the traffic is very light, and we’ll put some investments into the crossings.”

For this to happen as quickly as it has, with people not requesting it, I am assuming the companies are somehow linked into the post-office database and the address changes happen automatically.” Township officials had initially intended to adopt a pilot program, but post-office officials said it was impractical to make the change piecemeal, so it would have to be established throughout the township. “We don’t want to burden people with letters (from businesses about the address change), so we’re going to try to work with the post office to see how this is occurring and if there is any way to cut down on that (default change of address),” Harkness said.

• Pins and needles feeling • Numbness in the hands or feet • Tingling or burning sensations • Weakness in the Legs and Toes • Sharp shooting or burning pains • A feeling like a sock is rolled up under your toes? If so you may have a condition called peripheral neuropathy.

We all know there is a tremendous difference between covering up your symptoms or actually fixing the underlying problem. So, why settle for “band-aid care” when the Neuropathy Recovery Program is available? What if you could tap into your body’s natural healing abilities by using scientific principles to restore nerve function? I asked myself that very same question: What do nerves need to stay healthy? What causes nerves damage? How can I naturally “tip-the-balance” toward repairing and restoring sick nerves while also removing what was damaging the nerves? Are you tired of pleading with doctor after doctor for more help only to get the ‘pat answer’...” “Let’s try another pill.” You don’t have to be frustrated anymore or spend tens of thousands of dollars and countless hours away from your family ... hopelessly looking for hidden answers. I already did all the leg work for you and created the Neuropathy Recovery Program. The success lies in a powerful combination of Functional Neurology (aka Brain-Based Therapy) and Functional Medicine. The Neuropathy Recovery Program packs a powerful punch against nerve damage... naturally healing the nerves from the inside out. I’m not talking about some simple explanation of you having Diabetes and “Sorry, Mrs. Jones, this is just what happens to people. We’ll try help you cope with the problem.” That is just not good enough. I’m talking about doing advanced lab work and functionally examine the nervous system so you can control your future. We must discover all the underlying mechanisms that are damaging your nervous system and correct them.

Correct diagnosis + correct treatment = Incredible Results The good news is that the principles behind my Neuropathy Recovery Program work with both diabetic and non-diabetic types of neuropathy. How does it work? By stimulating the nerves and supporting their need for fuel and activation. With advanced metabolic testing you will finally discover how to take control of your neuropathy problem. My patients know the insider secrets to recovery. They have already received their individualized Neuropathy Recovery Program and are having amazing results! Let me say this, I am not promising that I can cure everyone, no doctor can. I don’t even know if you qualify for the Neuropathy Recovery Program, that is yet to be determined, and requires proper history and examination. I am so confident I am offering a special introductory visit for just $60 if you call before July 7, 2011. (normal fee $450). The initial visit includes everything: • A thorough case history where I listen...really listen to your concerns, goals, and hope for a better future. • A thorough review of your history and any previous medical test you forward. • Complete Functional Neurology Exam • A Toronto Qualification Screening - this painless test scores how bad your neuropathy is and the type you have (large or small nerve fiber disease). • My analysis and expertise in evaluating and helping neuropathy patients from a functional perspective. Here’s What You Need To Do Now... Call today 614-367-9355 and we will get you scheduled for your consultation, exam and x-rays if needed as soon as there’s an opening, (usually 1-2 weeks) Hurry! The offer is only good until July 7, 2011. We are conveniently located in Reynoldsburg at 7333 E.

2011 SUMMER EVENTS

Just thinking

Choices have no attraction for later generations Somehow, my husband and I and both of our daughters and sonsin-law all celebrate wedding anniversaries in June. I know, how conventional of us. If I were pushed to explain three June weddings — that’s June as in croon, tune, honeymoon — I could only shake my head helplessly. In fact, I’m shaking my head right now, just thinking about it. A June wedding! I was a disgrace to my generation, which was, of course, the generation of Woodstock, though I didn’t go there, and San Francisco’s Summer of Love, though I didn’t go there, either, and the Broadway musical “Hair,” that told our story, at least as accurately as the musical “Oklahoma!” told the story of the Oklahoma territory. In fact, my husband and I did see “Hair;” we saw it in London in the early 1970s and we were astonished to find ourselves stung by the anti-American sentiment both on the stage and in the audience. The unpopular Vietnam War was ongoing, of course; we didn’t like it ourselves but hadn’t expected to experience a surge of patriotism while on foreign soil. But there it was: We left the theater and went back to our bed-andbreakfast, not quite outraged but not entirely happy, either. Had we seen “Hair” in New York City, where the reaction of our fellow Americans wouldn’t have troubled us, would that have made choosing a moon-tune-June wedding seem like selling out? Or would we have run out of patience with the countercultural movement and all its strictures — which were as regulated in their way as the so-called establishment was in its? At any rate, when we suddenly decided to get married, it happened to be June, and it was still June when we walked to Columbus’Schiller Park, accompanied by half a dozen friends and a Unitarian minister.

Besides, it wasn’t a wedding. It was one elderly clergyman away from a civil ceremony. MARGO As for our BARTLETT daughters, well, it hardly matters when weddings are any more. It was only in the 1960s and ’70s that flouting convention seemed important enough to work at, at least for a while. Convention decreed that people marry in their early 20s? Well, then, we wouldn’t. Convention decreed a church wedding, preceded by showers and followed by trips that involved flying to someplace with a beach? We walked to the park and then went camping. Convention decreed an exchange of rings, preferably with an engagement ring to start the ball rolling? We never so much as discussed the ring question; rings never came up until months — possibly years — after

our wedding. In fact, it might have been our daughters who, once born, grew up, learned to speak, noticed our ringless hands and inquired about them. Had anyone asked me back in those days of convention-flouting why I was spurning, say, a more traditional wedding in favor of a casual three-minute ceremony in a crowded public park, I’m pretty sure I would have claimed to be setting a precedent for all posterity, but especially for my own. “I want to be a role model,” I’d have said. “I want to set an example for any daughters I might have, that you don’t have to do what society expects you to do.” Oh, yeah? It’s true that both daughters were married in the grass of our own front yard, one of them by a Unitarian minister, but there all comparisons end. The ceremony my older daughter and her husband worked out with the assistance of said minister was among the most affecting, emoSee JUST THINKING, page A8

Newark Optometry again reaches final By BRAD EMERINE ThisWeek Community Newspapers For the third time in four seasons, Newark Optometry of North Newark will play for the Varsity Division (ages 11-12) title in the Licking County Shrine Tournament. Newark Optometry will play KMA Electric, a North Fork entry, in the championship at 8:30 p.m. Thursday, July 7, at the Mound City Little League complex. “No, it never gets old,” Newark Op-

tometry coach Kevin Lewis said. “It’s special for every group of kids that comes through just to play in (the Shrine Tournament), but playing in the championship creates special memories. I just hope we don’t finish runner-up like we did last year.” Newark Optometry advanced by beating North Newark rival Edwards Jones Investment 10-4 in a semifinal June 28. Edward Jones had won the two league contests en route to winning the league title, although Newark Optometry beat Edward Jones in the Memorial Tourna-

ment. The majority of Edward Jones’ team competed in the Farm Division (ages 910) last season, where it was the runner-up in the Shrine.. “They are a young team and they’ll be tough again next season,” Lewis said. “They beat us pretty bad in the regular season, but we had a great first inning, gained some confidence and let Austin Fluhart take the mound with some momentum. He pitched really well with the lead and was using three or four pitches.”

Newark Optometry scored four runs in the top of the first inning after Michael Pound led off with a double. Fluhart hit a two-run double and Drake Nance added an RBI single. “We had to keep adding to the lead because (Edward Jones) is a good team and they came back on us earlier this year,” said Nance, who added an RBI groundout in the second. Chase Richardson hit a two-run single in the bottom of the first for Edwards Jones, but Newark Optometry made it 6-2 in the second, as Trenton Benner

had an RBI single. He also tripled in the fourth. “I don’t think we were ready to play and they came out and jumped on us,” said Richardson, one of only three second-year players on Edward Jones and the lone player to get two hits off Fluhart. “He pitched well, but now we’ve got to come back and be mentally strong to finish third.” KMA Electric reached the final with a 15-5 win over Licking Memorial HosSee SHRINE, page A7

Commentary

Athletes strive to excel in school Last week, the student-athletes writing in my summer series discussed the importance of balancing their time to prepare for and excel in both the classroom and in competition. This week, the seniors-tobe are focusing on the importance of having a good academic LARRY record. LARSON Austin Cuervo, St. Charles, golf: “In school, if you study and work hard, good grades will come; you can always count on that. In sports, even if you practice hard and play hard, you cannot always play well or perform well just because of the substantial amount of luck it involves. Studying has always got your back, sports do not.” Chase Delande, Hilliard Davidson, football and wrestling: “Academic success really helps in the long run, especially with colleges who love it when you can make an impact both on and off the field.” Morgan Ransom, Columbus Academy, golf: “My goal was always to play Division I golf at a school with strong academics. Coaches definitely look at your grade-point average and standardized test scores, so be prepared.” Jake Blankenship, Gahanna, pole vault: “Grades are very important because they only help you look better as an athlete and as a successful person.” Faith Washington, Reynoldsburg, track: “I always have felt as though someone with a good academic record shows a great amount of potential for strong leadership. In this world, you are either leading your own life or waiting for someone to do it for you. You don’t want that.” Michela Paradiso, Upper Arlington, soccer and basketball: “A strong academic record is important because it allows you to keep your options open for college and beyond. It is also important to remember that sports are just a segment of life and so I strive to be a well-rounded person.” Mary Wells, Westerville Central, bowling: “Colleges look at your whole schooling career, not just one year. You have much better chances being a great student than being a great athlete.” Jimmy Gammill, New Albany, football: “Great academics can open up many doors if you are seeking to play sports at the college level. Even if playing at the next level isn’t your dream, good grades and good test scores are essential for applying to colleges.” Napoleon Bell, Hartley, football and wrestling: “With a good academic record comes great discipline. This discipline carries over into sports and daily life.” Next week, the student-athletes consider the importance of having self-confidence when they are competing in their sports. I’ll see you at a game.

Former Dublin Scioto and Ohio State standout Jay Richardson speaks with those attending his camp June 24 at Scioto. The camp was for boys ages 11-18 and focused on teaching life skills.

Camp focuses on success off field By FRANK DiRENNA ThisWeek Community Newspapers

While many football camps stress Xs and Os, the Jay Richardson Camp at Dublin Scioto High School focused on life skills. The second annual camp, which was held June 24-25, was open to boys ages 11-18. Richardson, a defensive end for the Seattle Seahawks who played at Ohio State and graduated from Scioto in 2002, said he was

thrilled that he could hold the camp at his alma mater. The theme of the camp was “There is more to sports than the game,” and Richardson said he was eager to share that message. “This means a lot,” Richardson said. “It’s awesome that the high school was with me on this to get all these kids in here. It’s awesome that we can get the kids educated on what their options are and their future outside of their sport.”

Forty-seven boys attended last year’s inaugural camp at American Methodist Episcopal Church on North Hamilton Road in Columbus. There were 104 at this year’s camp at Scioto. “We’re telling the kids there’s more to sports than the game and if you don’t learn the stuff that’s really important then football doesn’t matter and soccer doesn’t matter,” said Deborah Johnson, a coordinator of the event and Richardson’s mother. “Sports won’t matter if you’re not doing

the right thing, if you’re not a gentleman and if you don’t have good grades, so we’re teaching them how to do those other things right.” Those messages were conveyed by guest speakers who included area court, police and military officials. Michael Carter, who will be entering sixth grade at Tree of Life, said he learned a lot from the presentations. See FOOTBALL, page A7

Area players hone skills with Hidden Gems By JARROD ULREY ThisWeek Community Newspapers

At a glance

Tapre Young could have several options in terms of her basketball career if things continue in the direction they’ve been going this summer. Now in her third season as a captain on the Columbus Hidden Gems semi-professional team, the 2004 Dublin Scioto High School graduate is one of the top outside shooters in the Women’s Blue Chip Basketball League. At 5-foot-11, Young averages more than 15 points and has been shooting better than 50 percent from 3-point range. That combination could make her an attractive possibility for overseas teams looking for players for their seasons, which begin in the fall. “I haven’t played anywhere overseas, but hopefully I will

after this season,” Young said. “I really wouldn’t mind playing in Spain, France or anywhere in Europe. I’d even consider Australia. Any time you can get paid for what you do, it’s a good thing.” If Young is unable to land a professional contract, she has an offer to serve as an assistant coach for the Talladega (Ala.) College women’s team. After graduating from Scioto, Young played two seasons for

Muskingum and two seasons for Salem International, a Division II school in Salem, W.Va. She then served one season as a student-assistant coach and graduated from Talladega College.

Seven receive scholarships

Starburst finalists The U12 Freedom soccer team was a finalist in the Starburst Soccer Spectacular on May 28-29 in Dublin. Team members are (first row, from left) Emma Fuentes, Emma Waite, Storey Brown, Sydney Remeis, Katelyn Diawara, Nikita Timler; (second row, from left) coach Riki Diawara, Maria Miller, Amy Brand, Zibby Brown, Maddie Henry, Emma Padgett, Skyler Brown and coach Jim Brand.

GEMS Continued from page A6 “(The Women’s Blue Chip League) is good competition, especially when you get to nationals,” Young said. “I like the fact that you get an opportunity to play and it gives you the opportunity to get looked at overseas. It’s a chance to showcase your talents.” After getting off to a 2-0 start, the Hidden Gems were 3-4 after losing to the Cleveland Crush 84-74 on June 25. On Saturday, July 2, Columbus will play host to the Oakland-Macomb Run from Oakland, Mich., in a Northeast Division game. The Hidden Gems lost to the Run 87-67 on June 5 but won a rematch 97-85 on June 12. The Hidden Gems play their home games at Lazelle Woods Recreation Center in north Columbus near Worthington. The roles of Young and cocaptain Lorrie Poindexter, a 2003 Beechcroft graduate in her second year playing for Columbus,

are more extensive than a year ago when former Ohio State player Brandie Hoskins and former Bowling Green player Niki McCoy were among the key players. Jeannie Saunders, who also was a captain a year ago, has been out with an injury but could return in July. Saunders and 2006 Delaware graduate Ashleigh Brown, who has played limited minutes with the Hidden Gems this season because of other commitments, recently signed extensions to play for a team in Sweden in the fall. Jamika Banks, a Fort Wayne, Ind., native who also was expected to play for Columbus, currently is playing in Australia. Catherine Cain, a Dayton native, has been averaging 19 points and 12 rebounds. Jessica Slack, a Thornville Sheridan graduate, averages 13 points. The other central Ohio natives on the Hidden Gems are 1999 Brookhaven graduate Ebony Pegues, 2001 Mifflin graduate

Sherrie Griffin, 2006 Africentric graduate Janicia Anderson and 2003 Walnut Ridge graduate Tina Huff. Columbus has three games remaining in the regular season before competing in the regional tournament in late July in Flint, Mich. The national tournament will be held Aug. 6-7 in Atlanta. Poindexter will begin her third season this winter as the girls basketball coach at Walnut Ridge. “I think everything is going OK,” said Poindexter, who is averaging 14 points and five assists. “We’re a whole new team really and we’ve just got to work together better. We’re better than the teams that have beaten us. We don’t have any superstars this year. Our team has a whole lot of heart and we just have to keep our team chemistry. By the time we get to Atlanta, we’ll be fine.” julrey@thisweeknews.com www.ThisWeekSPORTS.com

SHRINE Continued from page A6 pital, a North Newark entry. KMA scored in all six innings. Casey Daubenmire tripled twice, doubled and drove in four runs to support pitcher Jacob Allen. As in the other semifinal, KMA scored four times in the top of the first. “It was important to come out and get those early runs because we’ve been slumping a little lately, so we gained confidence and took away some confidence from (LMH),” coach Steve Cummins said. “We wanted to get them early because they’ve made a good run in the tournament. They didn’t have a strong regular season, but they play in a tough league.” Tony Hoover had a two-run single and Trey Cummins added an RBI single in the first inning. •The Farm Division semifinals were more closely contested, as Slagle-Kiser Dental and Marston Insurance advanced to the championship at 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, July 5. Slagle-Kiser, a Southwest Licking entry, rallied from a 4-1 deficit to beat Bloomberg Eye Care of North Newark 7-5. Down three runs with six outs remaining, coach Steve Dupps’ team scored four in the fifth to take a 5-4 lead. Drake Weber had an RBI single, Austin Ballenger hit an RBI double and Connor

FOOTBALL Continued from page A6 “I like the way they’re talking, like mentors and the way you have to do better stuff and try to do the right thing,” he said. Sam Tickle, who served 11 years in the U.S. Navy, began the camp by sharing stories and a video on his completion of 30 sports in 30 cities in 30 days. Tickle’s presentation, part of the EAS Unstoppable Tour, focused on proper sports nutrition and setting and achieving goals. “The one thing that I wanted to push is your brain gives up before your body gives up,” Tickle said. “You can push yourself a lot further when you just set your mind to it. If you’re able to train your brain to realize that pain is just temporary and that if you focus on a goal, your body will perform

ThisWeekSPORTS.com Brandon followed with a tworun double. “We talked about keeping our chins up and continuing to battle,” Dupps said. “I thought the boys did a great job of that. Ballenger, Brandon and Weber all had big hits, as did Jacob Berlekamp, an 8-year-old callup. He’s a left-hander who fouled off five pitches and then hit a tworun double to left field in the sixth for our final runs. I was so proud of him.” Dupps’ son, Collin Dupps, pitched a complete game. Both he and the team’s other top pitcher, Robby Montaganese, are 9year-olds. It will be Slagle-Kiser’s second trip to the final in three years. Marston Insurance, a North Fork entry, edged Ours Wrecking of Lakewood 2-1 in the other semifinal. Ours Wrecking led 1-0 through three innings and Devon Middlemus looked solid on the mound. But Garrett Myers singled and scored on an error and Tyler Baer singled and scored on a wild pitch in the fourth to give Marston Insurance the lead. Middlemus finished with 13 strikeouts for Ours Wrecking. Meyers pitched the first four innings and Mack Marston pitched the final two for Marston Insurance. “Our defense has been solid all season, but I think what maybe

You just collapse the net and tie it so the mosquitoes can’t get out, then you freeze them.” Testing is done at locations known to have large mosquito populations, and also in areas where complaints have been received. The health department states that most people infected with mosquito-borne viruses show no symptoms, while some people who are infected will suffer mild fevers, headaches and muscle aches that can last up to a week. People over 50 years old are more at risk than younger adults, while children under age 16 are at greater risk of developing severe symptoms.
